Mains, Petit Bites

First Anniversary Fish n Chips


Fried Fish:

3/4 cup Flour, plus some extra for dousing
3/4 cup corn starch
1 tsp baking powder
~ 1/3 cup Murphy’s double stout beer
1.5 pounds Atlantic cod filets
oil for frying


  1. Mix flour, corn starch, baking powder, pepper.  Add beer and enough water to make a thick pancake batter.
  2. Refrigerate batter for 30 minutes.
  3. Pat dry fish filets and season with salt. Douse with flour. Shake off excess.
  4. Heat the oil to 375 degrees.
  5. Batter fish and deep fry for 7-8 minutes.  Be sure to gently place the fish in oil with tongs –hold it for about 3 seconds, don’t just drop in it the oil or it will stick to the bottom of the pot.

I didn’t like the chips I made so I’m not including the recipe.  Next year I’m going to buy them frozen and bake them.
